Using lube for shaving

XYCopperheadSly XYCopperheadSly
When I was in the shower this morning, and I was getting ready to shave my nethers, a thought occurred to me: The point of shaving gel is to provide lubrication between the razor and the skin. Lubrication. Hmmmmmmm. I just happened to have a bottle of Sliquid Sea in the shower. (I know water-based lubes are impractical for shower sex. I use it to help insert my menstrual cup.) I mixed it with a tiny bit of my Kama Sutra shave cream (which I never use by itself, always mix it with something and that seems to work well), and DAMN if it wasn't the most comfortable junk shave I've ever had. A spritz of cold water and a spray of after shave protection mist (I have VERY sensitive skin) and I think it's the first time that I've had NO irritation after shaving!

Does anyone else here use lube to shave?

I've never used lubricant to shave but that's because I never had really thought about it before. That's really awesome it worked so well for you though. I'm going to have to try and remember this!

I will have to try it. Smart idea! I recently switched from womens razors to mens on the advice of someone on these boards. That worked out great!

I have heard of doing this. I think silicone lubes would be ideal for this.

Thanks for sharing the idea!

btw: "most comfortable junk shave" is my phrase for the day now.

I am honored that I could provide you with a "phrase for the day."

That being said, it seems like silicone lubes would rock except I think they would gunk up the razor......then again, I don't have any silicone lube laying around to test that theory.

I have used silicone lube before and it worked well! I think you are right about the gunk though. I have to rinse the razor more frequently.

No. I think it would be too messy with the razor. I only feel comfortable using shave cream and gel. I once tried hair conditioner because I saw it mentioned in a magazine....it made the tub SO slippery, never again.

Hm. I would never think to do this. Might have to try it.

I usually use shampoo (my shampoo seems to work better for shaving than my conditioner), but I'm glad I tried the lube on a whim.

I'm still trying to find a way to avoid razor bumpies and ingrown hairs. Yay for yet another thing to try!

That sound great to try, so curious to see if it work for me too.

Seems logical, especially in that area. It might be a good use for the cheap drugstore lube I never use, since its stickiness could be washed off immediately in the shower anyway. Thanks for the tip!

Good tip, I have to keep this in mind when my shaving cream runs out.

I have never thought of this very interesting concept though

I'm afraid of getting confused and using shaving cream as lube.

I tried silicone lube for shaving (my face) and didn't like it as well as conditioner, which is what I usually use.
